readily biodegradable

Additional information

Hexylene glycol biodegradation potential has been determined according to OECD 301F guideline. In the frame of this test, the biodegradation rate reached more than 60% within 20 days and the 10-day window criterion was met. Therefore hexylene glycol is considered as readily biodegradable. This results is also supported by other studies confirming this readily biodegradable potential.
